Callide Oxyfuel Project Final Results Report

The Callide Oxyfuel project was undertaken in three parts: Stage 1 – Demonstration of oxyfuel CO2 capture; Stage 2 – assessment of CO2 storage options and potential in Queensland and CO2 injection testing; and Stage 3 – Project wrap-up and commercialisation. The work and outcomes of these three phases are summarised in this report.

ZeroGen with IGCC: A Case History

In 2008 ZeroGen embarked upon a major Prefeasibility Study (PFS) for a nominal 500 MW Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) plant with carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Central Queensland. This included capture, transport and storage of some 60–90 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) over a 30-year period. This is a summary of the project results and lessons learnt.

NSW CO2 Storage Assessment Program: Final Report on Stage 1B Darling Basin Drilling

This report provides the results of this program which was aimed at filling gaps in knowledge of the deeper geology of the NSW sedimentary basins, assessing the CO2 geological storage potential of these basins, and learning more about the sealing characteristics of these strata.

Net Zero Emission Electricity - A Total Systems Cost Approach for Queensland

This study examines the role that existing power generation technologies, renewables, gas, and carbon capture and storage (CCS) could play in achieving Queensland’s target of zero emissions by 2050. This report complements the ‘Managing Flexibility Whilst Decarbonising Electricity’ report in its purpose but restricts its scope to the Queensland context. This research was conducted with the University of Queensland as part of its Surat Deep Aquifer Appraisal Project (UQ-SDAAP) and was funded by COAL21.
